"The frequently neglected field of health and safety management, the responsibility of many but understood by few, is well served by this comprehensive and well written book. It is, above all, highly informative and a 'must have' for senior practitioners and managers alike." John Barrell, OBE TD, formerly Chief Executive, The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health "This is a text for life. A comprehensive work that uniquely integrates occupational health and safety firmly into the international business management environment.... Undoubtedly it will also become a standard text for those embarking upon post graduate study in both occupational health and safety, and business management." Trevor Cooke, Faculty of Business & Law, Staffordshire University With increasing stakeholder interest in health and safety management, the onus is being put on organisations to anticipate and manage health and safety risks. This important new book considers health and safety management as an equal partner to other strategic business risks. Concepts of risk and models of risk management supply the context for the management of health and safety in a range of sectors. By applying the principles of business risk management to health and safety, the authors develop crucial best practice approaches that are applicable on a global platform, irrespective of local legislation. Key features: The underlying principles of health and safety management, such as risk management, risk perception, risk communication, behaviour, human error, economics and cost benefit analysis is explored. Using international and national approaches, ?best practice? techniques are presented to help managers develop and implement health and safety management systems in their own organisations. The roles of risk assessment, risk control, training, performance measurement, auditing, benchmarking and continuous improvement in health and safety management are analysed to provide an integrated and effective management system. Examples are drawn from a range of industrial, commercial and public sector organisations. Contemporary views on the social responsibilities of both the organisation and the individual to manage health and safety are featured in order to stimulate further debate and look to the future direction of health and safety management. Dr Colin Fuller and Dr Luise Vassie present the MSc in Health and Safety Management at the University of Leicester.
The International Civil Aviation Organization has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management Systems (SMS) in their aviation industries. Responding to that call, many countries are now in various stages of SMS development, implementation, and rulemaking. In their first book, Safety Management Systems in Aviation, Stolzer, Halford, and Goglia provided a strong theoretical framework for SMS, along with a brief discourse on SMS implementation. This follow-up book provides a very brief overview of SMS and offers significant guidance and best practices on implementing SMS programs. Very specific guidance is provided by industry experts from government, industry, academia, and consulting, who share their invaluable insights from first-hand experience of all aspects of effective SMS programs. The contributing authors come from all facets of aviation, including regulation and oversight, airline, general aviation, military, airport, maintenance, and industrial safety. Chapters address important topics such as how to develop a system description and perform task analyses, perspectives on data sharing, strategies for gaining management support, establishing a safety culture, approaches to auditing, integrating emergency planning and SMS, and more. Also included is a fictional narrative/story that can be used as a case study on SMS implementation. Implementing Safety Management Systems in Aviation is written for safety professionals and students alike.
Safety Management Systems: Applications for the Aviation Industry provides an in-depth review of specific applications of an aviation-related Safety Management System (SMS) by following it from design through application. Readers will gain an understanding of SMS and how it relates to their daily activities. Also, specific information is provided on the rotocraft industry, due to variations in the challenges it faces.
The discipline of Safety Management and Human Factors is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. Injury prevention is a common thread throughout every workplace, yet keeping employee safety and health knowledge current is a continual challenge for all employers. This books offers a platform to showcase research and for the exchange of information in safety management and human factors. Mastering Safety Management and Human Factors concepts is fundamental to the creation of products and systems that people are able to use, avoidance of stresses, and minimization of the risk for accidents.
Implementing a Food Safety Program in a Food Retail Business
Author: Hal King
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Category: Technology & Engineering
The goal of this book is to show how to build and manage a food safety department that is tasked with ensuring food safety within a food retail business. The experiences of the author as the head of Food and Product Safety at Chick-fil-A will be used as the model. Specifically, the book will discuss the specific components of a food safety program, the tactics needed to establish these components (forming the majority of the chapters), how to measure the success of each component, and how to influence the organization to ensure resources to support the program. The book will also focus on how to choose and work with the appropriate partners, validate the value to the business, and initiate the new component throughout the organization, including how to sustain the component within the program. Five features of this book that make it distinctive are: Most current “How to” book on leading a food safety department from the perspective of a respected national brand Provides the proper organization and methods to manage the work necessary to ensure food safety within the organization Provides the means to utilize risk-based decisions linked to business practices that accommodate a business analysis model Demonstrates step-by-step examples that can be used for continuous improvement in sustaining food safety responsibilities Provides examples on how to gain influence and obtain resources to support food safety responsibilities

Both meat and egg products, produced by the poultry industry, present a challenge during primary processing as the raw materials are obtained from the farm. Over past 50 years line speed has increased at a tremendous rate while more attention has been placed on food safety. The introduction of HACCP programs has helped the industry maintain high standards. The review includes flow diagrams which also point out the potential hazards and suggestions for critical control points, in an HACCP generic model for processing raw poultry meat and a model for pasteurized liquid eggs. Examples of a few hazards and ways to deal with them at the plant level are provided as an illustration of the approach to construct an HACCP plan.

In the current book, the Author discusses the latest findings related to the theory of organisation, public management and inter-organisational collaboration. She identifies conditions and motivational patterns which increase the effectiveness of inter-organisational collaboration in the public safety management system. Using a methodology that integrates various concepts and approaches, she develops her own, innovative model of collaboration. She examines factors that impact her model’s efficiency, demonstrating that it is not only determined by legal regulations and procedures, but also by social, organisational and situational conditions. Publications such as this one, discussing a specific management system, are relatively rare in the field of inter-organisational collaboration. Therefore, the work by Katarzyna Sienkiewicz-Małyjurek deserves recognition. excerpt from a review by dr hab.

Towards Smart Risk Governance and Safety Management
Author: Mathilde Bourrier
Category: Technology & Engineering
The conventional approach to risk communication, based on a centralized and controlled model, has led to blatant failures in the management of recent safety related events. In parallel, several cases have proved that actors not thought of as risk governance or safety management contributors may play a positive role regarding safety. Building on these two observations and bridging the gap between risk communication and safety practices leads to a new, more societal perspective on risk communication, that allows for smart risk governance and safety management.
